Roxbury, MA – 7.12.13
On Friday a mother marched in Roxbury so her children could play in the family’s front yard. A daughter marched for her friends’ safety.
Close to 100 community members, advocates, and politicians took to the streets of Roxbury’s Warren Gardens neighborhood to let the community and those committing the violence know that “enough is enough.”
“This is a neighborhood that refuses to be overrun by violence,” said Roxbury City Councilor Tito Jackson, one of the organizers of Friday’s march. “We’re going to stand up, we’re going to lean on one another; we’re going to take all the resources we have and use them to bring peace to these neighborhoods and communities.”
